Reading for 5/28

Both of next week’s readings are from the incomparable psyche of Antonin Artaud.

First, the radio play “To Have Done with the Judgment of God”, one of his final works and also one of his most famous. You cannot get the full effect of this piece by simply reading the text, so listen HERE and if you’re interested in reading along (albeit from a slightly different translation), you can reference THIS excellent collection of late Artaud works.

In addition, his essay Van Gogh: The Man Suicided By Society.

And they have pushed me over
into death
where I ceaselessly eat
cock
anus
and caca
at all my meals
all those of THE CROSS.
